The study discovered that those who consume five or more glasses of red wine a week had a 17% lesser risk of catching the virus.
Scientists believe that this reduced risk might be because of the drink's high content of polyphenol, which is known to help with the flu and other respiratory conditions.
Two other alcoholic drinks that were found to decrease Covid risk were white wine and champagne, with the study finding those who drank one to four glasses of either drink in a week had an eight percent lower risk of being infected with Covid.
However, the report had some bad news of pint lovers. It revealed that those who drank any amount of beer and cider were at a 28% higher risk of getting Covid, with anyone drinking five or more glasses of spirits each week also facing increased risk of infection.
